ProNutro AfricanX Trailrun Stage 2 change

After much deliberation the organisers of the ProNutro AfricanX Trailrun presented by New Balance have announced that Stage Two of this much loved three day stage race will undergo a minor reconstruction.  Taking place in Kleinmond the weekend of 06 – 08 May 2011, participants can look forward to a challenging yet humbling experience.According to Pieter Du Plessis, Race Director, the decision to implement changes to Stage Two was taken to ensure a scenic experience on the longest of the three stages.  “The recent fire in Kleinmond destroyed 40% of Stage Two’s vegetation.  Currently Nature Conservation has closed most of the mid section, as erosion is now a huge problem.  Although the distance will remain the same, the Stage’s climbs will be more spread out along the route before finishing once again in Kleinmond.  We are happy to announce that participants can still look forward to a safe, scenic and enjoyable experience,” says Du Plessis.
